Anytime I reflect on whether I have been “lucky” in my life, the number “460” comes to mind. It’s not a season batting average, or the number of yards passing in a football game. It most certainly is not related to anything sexual in nature, either; with the possible exception being the number of times […]

The Best Gift

September 5, 2013 · 3 comments

I love giving gifts!!! Nothing beats the satisfaction of seeing the look on someone’s face as they open a present, knowing you got them something they absolutely wanted. Even better still are the occasions when you got them something they never expected!! The beauty of gift giving is that it allows me to let someone […]

Penalty or Tax?

July 22, 2012

OK, so it’s been a few weeks now since the Supreme Court’s landmark decision on ObamaCare, and I am up to my usual rebellious tricks: namely, not relying on what the pundits, media outlets, bloggers, or politicians have to say about it, but rather, reading the damned thing for myself. I know, it’s a radical […]

The Checkout Counter

February 28, 2012

It was my infrequent sojourn to the supermarket the other day, not because I was tired of fast food, but because of that dreaded Notice from my kids’ school of a lice infestation. (Although I must admit that by now I should be tired of fast food, and based on my ever expanding waistline, I […]

Being Thankful

February 21, 2012

I absolutely love Apple TV! I mean, it’s a little device, no bigger than a couple of cubes of butter. It costs about $100, and it plugs right into your TV. It seems pretty simple, but once its hooked up you can access every picture or video you have on your computer and watch an […]

The Prankster

December 16, 2011

My son is a tactically calculating prankster. And he’s only 6. Just turned, in fact. I don’t know where he gets it, and I say that in complete dishonesty because I know exactly where he gets it. He is, in very deed, my little clone. A few months ago I had the pleasure of going […]

I’m Right Here!

September 12, 2011

“I’m right here!!” That’s what I wanted to say to my son as I saw him anxiously scanning the crowd to see if anyone was there to support him. It was earlier today, and I had gone to my kids’ school for a 9/11 Memorial program. My daughter saw me instantly as her class walked […]

My Little Scholar

August 18, 2011

Today was my son’s first day of Kindergarten, and I am not sure I was prepared for the emotionally stressful nature of the event. He seemed pretty calm, but I could tell that the uncertainty of his future was weighing on him. There he stood, wearing a backpack that was almost as big as he […]

The Rewards Club

May 16, 2011

The other day I went to a video game retailer to purchase a few games for my kids. (Note, I love my kids, and also appreciate the fact that they make great excuses for the purchase of video games.) The clerk told me how much I owed, and then asked “Are you a ‘Rewards Club’ […]
